My apologies, I should have explained it better and at once.

Here is the context. I am coordinating the Italian translation of the 
documentation and we are about to create a branch for 9.1. The 
publishing mechanism is based on DocBook XML (as well as the French 
one), as we are facing extreme difficulties publishing using SGML tools.

My intention was to start and change some simple documentation files in 
order to make our conversion process from SGML to XML smoother, while 
keeping the SGML compatibility of the original documentation intact. 
Also I was trying to make the ENTITY declarations consistent throughout 
the documents.

I hope I gave you a more clear explanation.

Cheers,
Gabriele
